Elizabeth Garcia Hernandez
College Adviser Fellow, LPS Richmond
Elizabeth is a native from Richmond, CA. She has live in Richmond all her life and graduated from LPS Richmond in 2014. Elizabeth attended UC Davis, where she double major in Chicano/a Studies and Spanish. As a first generation, low-income student, she knows how difficult it can be to navigate a higher institution with little to no support. That is why during her undergrad she got out of her comfort zone and found her home away from home and her support system. She join different campus organizations to find her community in college. Elizabeth wants to be able to give back to her community and make sure students don't feel alone through this process. As someone who has navigated college, Elizabeth believes it's important to share her knowledge with other students so they won't face the same struggles she did.
